"But the Spirit of Prophecy speaks only truth"
Testimony for the Church No. 26, page 11


        On this page will be shown some of the more important changes that have been discovered. The purpose of this page is twofold; 1.) To make the truth plain, 2.) To reveal something more of the age and depth of this satanic apostasy. Many of those responsible for attempting to hide these messages from God to his people are long past in the grave.

        The following passage is from page 14 of the “Supplement to the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White” 1854. This is placed here to further explain the purpose of this site, which is to expose error. You are urged to prove all things.


July, 1853

        I saw that it was not as it should be, that the paper, owned and approved of God, should come out so seldom. That the cause, in the time in which we are living, demands the paper weekly, and the publication of many more tracts to expose the increasing errors of this time; but the work was hindered for want of means. I saw that the truth must go, and that we must not be too fearful; that tracts and papers had better go to three where they were not needed, than to have one deprived of them who can be benefited, and who prized them. I saw that the last-day signs should be brought out and clearly shown; for the manifestations of satan are on the increase. Their publishing is increasing, their power is growing; and what we can do to get the truth before others, must be done quickly. p. 14, Para. 1, [SUPCEV].

        I was shown like this. The truth once got out now, will stand; for it is the truth for the last days, and it will live, and less need to be said upon the truth after it is out. Numberless words need not be put upon paper to justify what speaks for itself, and shines in its clearness. But it is not so with error. It is so winding and twisting that it needs a multitude of words to explain it in its crooked form. But truth is straight, plain, clear, and stands out boldly in its own defense. The cause of truth should not be hindered in its onward progress for want of means. p. 14, Para. 2, [SUPCEV].

        I saw that in some places all the light they had received came from the paper; and souls had received the truth in this way, and then talked it to others; and now in places where there are several, they had been raised up by this silent messenger. It was their only preacher. p. 14, Para. 3, [SUPCEV].

        The sentence in RED was deleted from the publication of Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, 1851, and Supplement to the Christian Experience and Views of Ellen G. White, 1854. The original text can be found in A Word to the Little Flock, page 19. However, we show it here as it would appear.

        From continuing research about the authentic Spirit of Prophecy we believe that God moved upon James and Ellen to delete certain items for his purposes.



This should be compared with the next item also.

        On page 17, is as follows: -- "I saw that the Holy Sabbath is, and will be, the separating wall between the true Israel of God and unbelievers; and that the Sabbath is the great question, to unite the hearts of God's dear, waiting saints. And if one believed, and kept the Sabbath, and received the blessing attending it, and then gave it up, and broke the holy commandment, they would shut the gates of the Holy City against themselves, as sure as there was a God that rules in heaven above. I saw that God had children, who do not see and keep the Sabbath. They had not rejected the light on it. And at the commencement of the time of trouble, we were filled with the Holy Ghost as we went forth and proclaimed the Sabbath more fully." p. 3, Para. 2, [SUPCEV].

        This view was given in 1847, when there were but very few of the Advent brethren observing the Sabbath, and of these, but few supposed that its observance was of sufficient importance to draw a line between the people of God and unbelievers. Now, the fulfillment of that view is beginning to be seen. p. 3, Para. 3, [SUPCEV].

        "The commencement of the time of trouble," here mentioned, does not refer to the time when the plagues shall begin to be poured out; but to a short period just before they are poured out, while Christ is in the Sanctuary. At that time, while the work of salvation is closing, trouble will be coming on the earth, the nations will be angry, yet held in check, so as not to prevent the work of the third angel. At that time the "latter rain," or refreshing from the presence of the Lord, will come, to give power to the loud voice of the third angel, and prepare the saints to stand in the period when the seven last plagues shall be poured out. p. 3, Para. 4, [SUPCEV].

        There are limits to God’s mercy. The words in RED were deleted from the publications of Early Writings (page 15) and re-publications of Review and Herald (book 1 page 14) purported to be photocopies of the originals. They lied to you. Prove all things.

        "While praying at the family altar, the Holy Ghost fell on me, and I seemed to be rising higher and higher, far above the dark world. I turned to look for the Advent people in the world, but could not find them--when a voice said to me, "Look again, and look a little higher." At this I raised my eyes and saw a straight and narrow path, [a] cast up high above the world. On this path the Advent people were travelling to the City, which was at the farther end of the path. They had a bright light set up behind them at the first end of the path, which an angel told me was the Midnight Cry. [b] This light shone all along the path, and gave light for their feet so they might not stumble. And if they kept their eyes fixed on Jesus, who was just before them, leading them to the City, they were safe. But soon some grew weary, and they said the City was a great way off, and they expected to have entered it before. Then Jesus would encourage them by raising his glorious right arm, and from his arm came a glorious light which waved over the Advent band, and they shouted Hallelujah! Others rashly denied the light behind them, and said that it was not God that had led them out so far. The light behind them went out leaving their feet in perfect darkness, and they stumbled and got their eyes off the mark and lost sight of Jesus, and fell off the path down in the dark and wicked world below. It was just as impossible for them [those that gave up their faith in the ‘44 movement] to get on the path again and go to the City, as all the wicked world which God had rejected. They fell all the way along the path one after another, until we heard the voice of God like many waters, [c] which gave us the day and hour of Jesus' coming. [d] The living saints, 144,000 in number, knew and understood the voice, while the wicked thought it was thunder and an earthquake. [e] When God spake the time, he poured on us the Holy Ghost, and our faces began to light up and shine with the glory of God as Moses' did when he came down from Mount Sinai. [f] p. 14, Para. 2, [WLF].

        Even though we do not endorse this book in any way, the following makes a great example of the obvious freedom some have felt to make changes to materials proffered under the name of Ellen G. White, years and years after her death.

        Take your “Testimonies to Ministers and Gospel Workers” and turn to page 79. Five lines up from the bottom the paragraph starts out, “The perils of the last days are upon us.”

        Now that you have the spot I am going to tell the world something that I have been itching to tell for a few months now. You get to listen in. The real beauty of this quote, as with others, is the changes over time with the different printings. It tells a story that they have printed to the world and can not call it back. Here it is. When you read the texts, you will understand.....perfectly.



Here is how it was first printed in 1895, one of 11 articles titled, "Instruction to Ministers."

“The perils of the last days are upon us. Read Matt. 26:14, 15, 16, Satan takes control of every mind that is not decidedly under the control of the Spirit of God.”



Here is how it was printed in 1923, 1944 & 1965.

“The perils of the last days are upon us. Read Matt. 25:14, Satan takes control of every mind that is not decidedly under the control of the Spirit of God.”



Here is how it has been printed since 1965.

“The perils of the last days are upon us. Satan takes control of every mind that is not decidedly under the control of the Spirit of God.”

They lied to you. Prove all things.

The End
